Staff Answer
This sprayer is capable of spraying water based cleaners, but would not provide the constant pressure needed to clean a deck, paint sprayers are designed to run for shorter periods. A pressure washer would be best suited for this application. See below for pressure washer options.

I am sorry, but the gun and hose cannot be switched so it is able to spray deck cleaner through the sprayer.

When using latex paints, clean your sprayer and components using warm, soapy water.When using oil-based paints,use mineral spirits.Do not use mineral spirits on latex paint, or the mixture will turn into a jelly-like substance which is difficult to remove.

answer 2
For clean up you are going to want to follow the paint manufactures recommendations for clean up. For instance if you are using latex paint you would want to use warm soapy water for clean up. Once you have finished cleaning your sprayer you will want to take about two tablespoons of a light oil and suck it up into the inlet valve to keep the seal lubricated.

answer 3
If you want to protect your investment as I'm sure everyone would want to take care of their Wagner Airless Sprayer system. Use care when cleaning it:

Warm soapy water for LATEX or water based products; and mineral spirits or lacquer thinner if cleaning sprayer after using oil based paints, stains or sealers.
Be sure to preserve sprayer between uses with pump preserver or just plain WD-40--it will save you a lot of headaches when you pull it out to use after its been sitting 10 or 20 months.

The sprayer will work with both one gallon and five gallons. It comes with a 50 foot hose so when using a one gallon a lot of the paint will be used to fill the spray hose.
